My version

Remember I told you I was making my own version of this?  (Joy's is wonderful!)   Here it is:
We had this huge canvas that no one wanted in their bedrooms anymore, so the kids helped me prime it.
 I used the vinyl letters from Office Max and then primed over them.
 I worked on it for a couple of days.  I would add a few layers and textures, and then go back the next day and add a few more.
 This is my favorite part...I laid a doily down and spray painted over it.  You can see here where I started taking the letters off.
 I am happy with the result!
 Here it is again.  We have no natural lighting in this room, and I'm actually still making some tweaks in there.  But I love walking in and seeing it!
I'm linking up to Blessed Little Nest today, who inspires me to make lovely things.  :)
Happy Monday!
